Digging the Wells of Revival
The following is a log of the general things we prayed for each month from December 2010 to May 2011 in Pisgah Chapel and then the continuation of Pisgah House of Prayer at St Michael's Loughor Jun 2011 to Dec 2012 starting with the oldest meetings first.
January 2012 to December 2012
It was a great start to 2012. Over 20 gathered and Nancy came with Elaine and Moreen before her flight back to Israel. She is living in Jerusalem and is part of the 24-7 prayer house in Jerusalem. She opened up the New Year with prayer for Israel, for the youngsters in the land, for the government, the forces, for salvation using Isaiah 62 in prayer. She informed us that on a Monday at Midday that they pray for 1 hour for the UK and for us as a prayer house in Wales.
She proclaimed the blessings from Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and Numbers 6: 22-24. After a time of worship we prayed in small groups for the local schools, the Bible Explorer ministries, for all young people in the land after Jeanie gave some great testimonies of what the Lord has started to do in the last few months in the area.
The word on the tab 'Prophetic Words' above was given out, and we were encouraged to press on. Nick and Dawn part of our young Joel's army sang and worshipped on the worship team giving us a cross generational flavour.
Right at the end of the meeting Nancy prayed for our Welsh youth and gave them great encouragement from the Lord. Nancy asked to be prayed for before she left for her flight. During the prayer time an anointing and impartation came from the Lord that felt, and seemed like honey going forth which she said she could see it and feel it. Job 22: 21-30 was a passage that came strongly. These verses contain some amazing prayer promises and promises to carry salvation to those around us, whatever their condition. Job 22:21 was written across Pisgah Chapel's back wall for all to see and was the first thing that struck you when you entered the chapel.
The following day I studied honey and passages like Rev 10: 8-11 and Ez 3: 1-11 came to mind. Prophetic words from God can taste like honey to the mouth but can be bitter to the stomach sometimes because they can contain the judgements of God which bring nations and people in to line with God's plan so they can repent and find salvation in Christ.
The prophetic words above 2011 and 2012 certainly contain that mixture. We are those who have chosen to accept the fire and to revere His name so we may accomplish the purpose He has set out for us. Malachi Chapter 4
Jan 14th Many gathered this evening. We worshipped the Lord and we looked at John 15: 1- 8 and 11-17. When we receive the fullness of the word of the Lord it sometimes hard for us to implement it, but the outcome will be astonishing. We are pruned by the Lord.
Useless things/branches that don't bear fruit will be cut off and thrown in the fire and useful branches or things in our lives will be trimmed and so that they become more fruitful. This all results in a great prayer promise that (verse 7-8) if you REMAIN IN ME and MY WORDS REMAIN in you, ASK WHATEVER YOU WISH and it will be given to you". "This will be to the Father's glory, that you bear much fruit showing yourselves to be my disciples". We are reminded in this passage that 'apart from me you can do nothing'.
Verses 16 and 17 say You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. Then the Father will GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU ASK IN MY NAME". This is my command 'love each other' - another great prayer promise.
The passage from 1 Cor 10:1-13 shows us warnings from Israel's history and exhorts us to persevere through the temptations because He will provide a way out by which we can stand up to it.
All age groups worshipped and sang and one of the children led 'Give me oil in my lamp keep me burning' at the end of the evening. He was so in the anointing of the spirit that it was like God was encouraging us to keep praying as we did this night too for the local children and this is what will happen to them. The un-churched children will sense the Spirit of God and enter in so naturally to praise the Lord. Psalm 8 contains these verses
1) O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens,
2) from the lips of CHILDREN and INFANTS you have ordained praise because of your enemies to silence the foe and the avenger.
We were greatly encouraged by the testimonies from various people of the doors that are being opened in the schools and colleges around the area to take god’s word in them and one testimony we heard was of the college students asking for the lecturer to give her testimony. They all listened intently.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY INTO THESE AREAS.
Jan 21st We started the evening by praying for one another, for each others needs. Gal 6:2 says 'Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ'. This law is the New Covenant law of love in which all the Ten Commandments and laws have their fulfilment.
Gradually the atmosphere began to change. There was a heavy burden for schools, teachers and lecturers who are under enormous pressure from pupils and parents in some instances. This became our prayer for the evening into schools, colleges that God would protect and open doors through various ministries like Bible Explorers.
At the end of the evening after the presence of God fell in the worship felt the Lord saying in 2 Chronicles 7:15 'Now my eyes will be open and my ears will be attentive to the prayers offered in this place'.
Jan 28th After worshipping and inviting the Shekinah Glory to come, the full manifest presence of the Lord to come, Elaine shared on 'How to pray for Israel'. We prayed for God's chosen people and all the surrounding lands, for 24 -7 prayer houses and all praying people around the region to be protected and anointed to carry out God's purposes.
At the end there was a picture received of the tears of Jesus as He was weeping in intercession. Every tear that we shed with him for the lost, for Jerusalem, for His plans will become like a river of life into their lives and rivers of life for whole regions that we pray for by His Spirit.
December 2010 - The foundational meeting
We held the opening evening of prayer, praise and worship on Sat Dec 18th to lay the foundation of the House of Prayer at Pisgah. The snow conditions were extremely difficult but we had 12 people turn up that night, Hallelujah! The Lord's presence was awesome.
He has promised us from Haggai 2:18, 19 "From this day on, (from Dec 18th 2010):- Give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid', Give careful thought; Is there any seed left in the barn? Until now the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit.
From this day on I will bless you!"
March 3rd Laura brought Joshua chapter 1 encouraging us to take the land flowing with milk and honey on behalf of the people and situations that need it. Joshua 1: 3 and verse 9
“I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses'. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” We are to go and take the land for the captives so they can live and be restored in the land flowing with milk and honey. "Yes I have promised you will see me come and you will lead the captives to take their inheritance in the land, bringing revival and awakening.
This chapter follows on from Deutronomy 34 where Moses saw the Promised Land before he died from the top of Pisgah peak on Mount Nebo on the opposite side of the Jordan. As a prayer house we are praying into the land that the Lord has promised. There was such a confirming anointing flowing on these verses of scripture as though God was saying "Yes I have promised you will see me come and revive the land."
A picture of the Lord's hand stretching forth and touching people, performing miraculous signs and wonders, was given along with Jacob's ladder. There was a heavy tangible presence of the Lord as He met with us and dealt with us. We felt he was dressing us and equipping us for ministry imparting 'Special Grace' for the type of service He was calling us too as well as the Spirit of grace and supplication upon the House of David given in Zechariah 12:10. A confirming word was given that the Lord was washing our feet. This was given to 2 people by one person. All these 3 people were not there 2 weeks ago when the Lord washed our feet around the pool of Bethesda.
Such confirmation that the Lord is opening up the Angelic realm and that we are calling the King of Glory into the land to meet and touch all people paralysed with sin and disease both in pisgah house of prayer meetings and out anywhere where we set our foot. (I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses'). Psalm 27 was focussed
A person turned up after He felt that God was leading him to intercede for revival. He was one of our old friends who opened his house for prayer every morning 18 years ago. He felt his prayer for guidance was answered and when remarked on the heavy presence of God during the meeting.
We finished by singing 'There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood' so that the people in the land would hear it, and singing 'There's no place I would rather be, than here in Your love'.
March 10th The presence of God was tangible as we worshipped the lord. We prayed for 1 hour and it did not feel like it. We are signed up to Prayer Storm (see tab on links page) to pray for 1 hour in Wales as part of the global network and we prayed for children and Israel and families. We prayed for our close families as sometimes these are the hardest to pray for.
Isaiah 58: 7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
March 17th This evening was a mighty time soaking and praying in the presence of God using CD's and live worship. God was visiting his people and marinating us with His presence. God's call was this:-
Ezekiel 22:30 “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. Yes we will stand as watchmen on the wall.
March 24th We had some vibrant singing and we prayed into the area of employment having been given this word earlier in the day.
March 31st Tonight we continued to pray for the raising up of the younger generation which were all under 20 years old who with Joshua and Caleb entered and possessed the Promised Land. Our younger generation need prayers, pastoring, equipping to do just this. In Deuteronomy 34 Moses imparted his wisdom and anointing on to Joshua on Pisgah Peak on Mount Nebo.
Deut 34 9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses.
10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, 11 who did all those signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. 12 For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
Also Pisgah Peak was a place of praying blessing over Israel (Balaam) and of Meeting with God and of receiving prophetic utterance. These things happened at Pisgah.
Num 23: 13 Then Balak said to him, “Come with me to another place where you can see them; you will not see them all but only the outskirts of their camp. And from there, curse them for me.” 14 So he took him to the field of Zophim on the top of Pisgah, and there he built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar.
15 Balaam said to Balak, “Stay here beside your offering while I meet with him over there.” 16 The LORD met with Balaam and put a word in his mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.” 17 So he went to him and found him standing beside his offering, with the Moabite officials. Balak asked him, “What did the LORD say?” 18 Then he spoke his message: “Arise, Balak, and listen; hear me, son of Zippor. 19 God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil?
20 I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. 21 “No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. 22 God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox.
23 There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob
and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’ 24 The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.” 25 Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!” 26 Balaam answered, “Did I not tell you I must do whatever the LORD says?”
April 7th A good number attended the meeting, many prayers offered on behalf of the lost.
April 14th This wee we had been led to a transcript of a revival in Loughor and Goppa Fach which took place on December 18th/19th 1797, the same date as the foundation of Pisgah House of Prayer and the same date as the second chapter of Haggai. The word spoken to Zerubabbel was the laying of the temple foundation on that day. We also found out that Howell Harris preached at Pontarddulais in 1740 and we were led to a broken down farmhouse were Howell Harris and his non-conformists used to meet for prayer, wow. I was reminded of the text from Jeremiah 6:16
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
April 21st A good number attended the meeting, many prayers offered and some great testimonies to the grace of God.
April 28th Continuing to obey the voice of God, to remind ourselves of the words and promises that the Lord has spoken in regards to the things he has promised.
May 5th There was a great sense of joy from the Holy Spirit given to all of us as we sang, praised and prayed. We blew the shoffars and sensed great spiritual breakthrough in the atmosphere.
May 12th We sensed the words of Rev 3 where the Lord knocks at our doors. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. 21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches?”
When we let him in He eats with us the Bread of heaven and changes us from the inside out, revealing the truth of the word. There was a real sense of the Lord inhabiting the praises of His people.
May 19th We were asked as Pisgah HOP to take part in www. thejourneyfromescalls.co.uk see the link for the Olympic Torch Praise Bus on the LINKS PAGE. This is a vision of Escalls Chapel in Lands End to raise up a torch of prayer praise and worship in front of the Olympic torch relay for 70 days around the British Isles. A bus has been hired and re-painted for the occasion. The journey will take 70 days and we have been asked to participate in leg from Llanelli to Aberystwyth on Pentecost Sunday 27th May. This is also Global Day of Prayer 2012.
This particular evening we prayed for this and for the land and we praised the name of the Lord.
May 26th This evening was dedicated to praying for Wales as we were setting off the day after on our prayer/praise journey, lifting a flame of the Lord across the land. Like the Olympic torch Lev 6:12,13 says 12 The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it. 13 The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out. AMEN.
Isaiah 62 carries the scripture for prayer as a parallel of raising the land of Wales as a blazing torch as we also pray for Israel.
A lady called Judy came to Pisgah with Mavis and Colin. Went to live in N.Carolina She had been living in Jerusalem for 12 years. She is a seer. She refers to angels as the airforce. She belongs to the 24/7 group in Jerusalem praying re the Kings Highway Egypt through to Iran.. In a prayer meeting spoke to the couple next to her. When they said they were from UK, Judy then had this vision.
She was looking down on the UK. She saw fires streaming around the coast of Wales. They went right round the coast of UK. She saw fires simmering. Humungous colours of fire. Saw UK shaking with the power of God. This is going to happen very soon. Romans 11. This is the last remaining revival. It is going to happen for certain.. 'I have come from Zion and am bringing you the word of God from Jerusalem' she said.
Get your bibles ready. Know your verses of scripture regard salvation. Have your word in your hip pocket ready. Be prepared. The harvesters are going to overtake the sowers. You won't be bringing one person at a time, like a cowboy lassoing one cow but you will be bringing them in by their herds. God will bring the nations here as they speak English.
She was passing our meeting place with Mavis and Colin early when travelling back from Moriah and saw a 40ft angel on the castle wall. Hands were resting on swords, looking right and left with a double edged sword. We have an airforce with us. Know your authority and power. Put on your armour. Greater is he that is in us than he in the world.
Ephesians 2 being seated with him in high places.
Be full of the Spirit, use your prayer language. There are signs of warrior angels all around us. There is nothing bigger or stronger than our God.
Arise and Shine...we've got the torch. 70 days canopy of praise and prayer is happening now. Churches are coming into agreement. Remember ps 133 God's blessing. Declaration was spoken over Swansea/Loughor. 'I am alive for evermore'. The prayer of blessing was prayed out.
June 2nd After an amazing day with 17 Canadians in Moriah and Loughor tonight's prayer and worship flowed. There were many in the age group of 18-27 praying fervently for the land and as the Spirit led. The meeting during the day had released a greater anointing at night into Pisgah House of prayer. A word about God building His church upon the foundations of the Apostles and Prophets with Christ at the Head was received from God since Pisgah was the source of the Apostolic Church in Penygroes in approximately 1929.
June 9th A good number of young people turned up again. Prayer and praise was loud and exuberant. A strong word from Hebrews came out. Heb 12
1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
God Disciplines His Children
4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, 6 because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” 7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline —then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13 “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
June 16th We were blessed with 28 passionate people, 18 of which were young excited and up for praying for everything and glorifying God. Two of our Canadian friends joined us from Thunder Bay Canada late in the evening after a long day's travel.
June 23rd We read passages from Ps 1 Jer 17:9, ps 46.4 Ez 47:12 Rev 22:1-6. We sensed that the Lord was releasing the river of God for us to drink from and the Tree of life to eat form, so that our leaves would be for the healing of the nations. We felt the assurance that the things of Revelation 22:1-6 would happen soon verse 6
June 30th This evening we had a wonderful praise time and for the first time prophetic singing and praying flowed out as various people released prayers from the front. After 18 month an IHOP style prayer and worship session was achieved. Praise the Lord. Later we had a very quiet formal relaxed peaceful time in prayer. The Lord had spoken and released peace that transcends all understanding into the meeting and we were able to pray into troubled lives the peace of God. Matt from Poland played bass guitar and prayed with us this evening.
Many gathered tonight in the hall. The Holy Spirit moved powerfully among us during some exuberant praise and worship. One report was that of a new Christian said they had been baptised in the Holy Spirit and was praying in tongues.
One person had been saved during the week and a prophetic word had gone out during the night about the Lord’s love never fails, never gives up and never runs out on me. The word was about when the Lord left the 99 and went after the lost sheep until he brought it back. This lady had been saved this week on this scripture. He restores the lonely in to families.
Twenty or more gathered, prayed and worshipped the King of Glory. Ron from America, shared some of his prophetic insights and some of his journey with us. We were greatly encouraged. He prayed and gave words to people. We sang like never before and raised the roof.
Last week there was a sighting of the Aurora Borealis over North Wales. This was exciting as it was also seen over Kent. Celebration for the Nations started in Llanelli with about 600 gathered to worship the Lord and sing to the wells.
Isaiah 11:1- 3 and 10-12 featured in our prayer focus tonight.
We had a sharing meeting where we talked about the vision for Pisgah House of Prayer, the way forward and how we were going to get there. There have been many encouragements along the way. Everybody was encouraged and felt it was a needed and good meeting.
August 4th We had a sharing meeting where we talked about the vision for Pisgah House of Prayer, the way forward and how we were going to get there. There have been many encouragements along the way. Everybody was encouraged and felt it was a needed and good meeting.
Saw a vision of a sword and of a glass lantern/jar with a flame being lit within it. This later was confirmed to be Gideon's men who had jars with torches in and trumpets in their other hand.
This week we wrote down anything we felt the Lord saying and spoke these words and pictures out. Huw came up with a word about Gideon which confirmed the vision we saw last week in the meeting. God is getting us ready for battle and to route the enemy in our land. Psalm 110:1-3 and Judges 7:15-22.
August 18th We had reminders from one of our warriors of Haggai Chapter 1, the foundation to Pisgah house of prayer. God was stirring up the spirits of Zerubbabel, Joshua the High priest and the remnant to restore the Temple.
Hag 1:1 In the second year of King Darius, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua son of Jozadak,[a] the high priest:
2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “These people say, ‘The time has not yet come to rebuild the Lord’s house.’”
3 Then the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai: 4 “Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your panelled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”
5 Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. 6 You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”
7 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways.
8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honoured,” says the Lord. 9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the Lord Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house. 10 Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. 11 I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labour of your hands.”
12 Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the Lord their God had sent him. And the people feared the Lord.
13 Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave this message of the Lord to the people: “I AM WITH YOU,” declares the Lord.
14 SO THE LORD STIRRED UP THE SPIRIT OF ZERUBBABEL son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and THE SPIRIT OF JOSHUA son of Jozadak, the high priest, and THE SPIRIT OF THE WHOLE REMNANT OF THE PEOPLE.
They came and began to work on the house of the Lord Almighty, their God, 15 on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month.
1 Cor 6:17 was a prominent verse given out tonight: - 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
What an awesome meeting tonight. A Korean lady from a 24/7 prayer house in Jerusalem and many other friends gathered. The worship and prayers were so anointed. two Koreans were leaving and received very specific prophetic words. During the week I noticed an article about how Evan Roberts was consumed by Holy Fire and saw a vision of 100,000 people coming to Christ in Wales.
Isaiah 33:14 came to mind:-
13 You who are far away hear what I have done; you, who are near, acknowledge my power!
14 The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless:
‘Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire?
Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?’
15 Those who walk righteously and speak what is right, who reject gain from extortion, and keep their hands from accepting bribes, who stop their ears against plots of murder and shut their eyes against contemplating evil –
16 they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress.
Their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them.
17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar.
In the last two weeks these verses have come up in prayer for us to hold on to in every way.
5 Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?
We prophetically held a piece of Welsh coal and prayed that the fire from the land would go forth with us as we left. One person was returning to Israel and the other to Korea.
In the past coal from Wales was taken out to the Nations and the revival fire went with it. Amen
This was a tough going week. Sometimes we have to persevere and lose sight of what it is all about. We still prayed and worshipped anyway, a sacrifice of praise. A week like this and it makes you revisit the promises that God has said to us personally and cooperatively.
During this last week the Lord spoke a very distinct word to me. "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."
Heb 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”
38 And,” But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
When people train for Olympics they have 4 years for a couple of races lasting a few minutes or hours, that’s 1461 days of discipline and hardship. We need to have this mentality in praying for revival in the church and an awakening in the land.
2 Tim 2:3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
Heb 12:12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Phil 2:14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labour in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
Jude 1: 17- 23 A Call to Persevere
17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 25 to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Finally Heb 10: 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
HE WILL DO IT Revival.
We were encouraged that God will come as He has promised and do what He said.
We prayed for Saskatoon Saskatchewan a seat of revival in 1971, and seeds were sown into the North Battleford revival 1948 (Latter rain revival). Our friends from Saskatoon were doing a prayer/intercession teaching weekend. Mark currently in bible college placement in Bristol brought 3 friends and we had a mighty time of prayer, prophecy and a received a great word from Mark. How the Lord is blessing him and what a preaching gift with a prophetic edge. We were so blessed. One of the guys from Bristol gave a great testimony of the Lord's grace.
Psalm 27:4-8 came out tonight:-
4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you ‘Seek his face!’ Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Tonight apart from the worship and prayer we celebrated a birthday and this evening we gave a great deal of time to praying for one another. We actually felt the Holy Spirit in ‘righteousness, peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost'.
This night was the eve of Fast of Tabernacles, a few days after the Day of Atonement. tonight we had a visitor, a Jewish Messianic Rabbi. He had been at various meetings during the week. We had sensed that the Lord was speaking to us as a body and saying what the angel said to Gideon 'Arise mighty warrior arise.' He came with those words from Judges 6: 12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” It took him time to receive these words and walk them out in his life.
The church in Wales needs to hear this afresh and walk in the God ordained destiny mapped out before us.
He talked about the great heroes and revivalists of Wales just heard the God ordained plans and promises spoken over Wales and they lived them out. We too can rise up, believe the promises and destiny of our land and cause God's divine plan to become reality in our day. If we humble ourselves as these forefathers of our faith and imitate their faith we can release new rivers of living water out of our bellies and together can produce a mighty revival river once again as they did in days of old.
Water may not come out of the old wells but out of new wells of groups walking in partnership with the Holy Spirit as He communicates His perfect will for us from the Father for our time and location according to God's agenda from the throne room imitating Jesus the author and perfector of our faith.
He said that we need to rise up and realise that we are KINGS and PRIESTS with the authority to carry out God's precepts, not keep looking at our failures.
He prophesied that by this time next year (Feast of Tabernacles) .we would receive back everything that the enemy has stolen because he felt that 2012 was a Jubilee year for us as a Prayer House and the church in Wales as a whole.
On the next day after 6:30pm the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles there were some spectacular Auroras seen over the Northern British Isles. Which was amazing as there was a very bright 'Harvest full moon' lighting up the sky. (SEE THE JOURNEY PAGE FOR THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SEEING THE NOTHERN LIGHTS). These lights appeared in the shape of a ring which reminded me of Haggai 2
Zerubbabel the Lord’s Signet Ring
Haggai 2:20 The word of the Lord came to Haggai a second time on the twenty-fourth day of the month: 21 “Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. 22 I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms. I will overthrow chariots and their drivers; horses and their riders will fall, each by the sword of his brother.
23 “‘On that day,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will make you LIKE MY SIGNET RING for I have chosen you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” WOW WHAT AUTHORITY.
The passages relating to this period (Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles) on the Jewish calendar are John chapter 6, 7 and 8.
We read out of Judges 7 about Gideon's 300 with torches in one hand and trumpets in the other hand, all following Gideon's instructions shouting 'a sword for the Lord and for Gideon'. We felt that as we did this the vast enemy army would be defeated and victory would be ours.
Judges 7:19-22 Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. 20 The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” 21 While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.
22 When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords. The army fled to Beth Shittah toward Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah near Tabbath.
Besides prayer and worship tonight Huw gave a great word reminding us about being servant leaders.
John 13:3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.
15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
This night the Lord encouraged us to keep on praying that we may not fall into temptation. Also Jesus was strengthened by an angel to pray in verse 43.
Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives
Luke 22:39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.
We prayed , 12 of us for Children, kids, schools, churches, families, the young in Israel and for the body to arise like a mighty warrior like Gideon after being touched by the angel.
October 20th Good evening of prayer, praise and fellowship.
We were greatly encouraged by the story of the storm in Acts 27 where the angel came upon Paul and said that everyone would reach their destination safely. Despite many adverse events and the prisoners at the oars being shipwrecked and almost killed by the guards, they all arrive in Crete and were set free and shown UNUSUAL KINDNESS.
We were encouraged to keep going no matter what and God will truly bring about all that He has said.
November 3rd We felt the Lord was reminding us that his judgement will separate the sheep from the goats Matt 25: 31-46. Also Joel 3 13-18
November 10th Plenty of worship and prayer tonight. Felt the Lord encouraging us with Hebrews 10: 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” 38 And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
November 17th This night Huw and Cerys were getting married and Andy, Gill and Asher attended the wedding, Andy was best man. What an awesome Christian wedding, what a blessing. Glen led worship in the hall and there was a great time of worship and seeking the Lord. Much prayer was done and a couple of visitors turned up.
November 24th We felt the Lord instructed us to decree the prayers into the supernatural realm. When the King gave a decree it was eternally binding and had to be carried out.
Esther 8:8. Now write another decree in the king’s name in behalf of the Jews as seems best to you, and seal it with the king’s signet ring—for no document written in the king’s name and sealed with his ring can be revoked.”
Job 22: 27- 30 27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfil your vows. 28 What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. 29 When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’ then he will save the downcast. 30 He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.
What words have been given to us? All the prophetic visions and words on the journey page of website, we must decree
Isaiah 58 12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. Do we believe it?
Isaiah 49: 8 & 9 This is what the Lord says:
“In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances,
9 to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’
“They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill.
10 They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them.
He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.
December 1st 2012
There was a strong call and assurance to stand with the Lord in battle. Isaiah 59:19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along.
20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the Lord. 21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord.
Isaiah 59:19 Or When enemies come in like a flood, / the Spirit of the Lord will put them to flight
December 8th We had a visit from an intercessor from the valleys. We prayed for one another to see our God given visions manifest and coming to fruition especially the puppet ministry in schools, the children, the teachers, the parents. It’s been amazing to see what God has been doing in schools, how they have been opened to bibles and how many people have been touched by it all. We prayed that the facets of the Holy Spirit would be stirred up in us.
Isaiah 11 1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him — the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord — 3 and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
December 15th We prayed for our mandate. The coming great Youth awakening, revival in the church, Israel and the peace of Jerusalem. Governmental wisdom and we prayed for some pressing needs as led by the Spirit of God.
December 22nd This was a great night of celebration with all different age groups and people from as far as Bristol. Young Mark gave an excellent fiery word stirring up our hearts to move out in faith and to see signs and wonders following the preaching of the word and a call to make disciples of all nations. There was a great sense of the presence of God and looking back it has been 2 years of persevering with some great supernatural surprises along the way. We finished by having food and lots of it all brought in by various people.
Feb 4th During the week we met a man whose life had been dominated by this verse John 11:35, Jesus wept. God was confirming His word in the natural to us, that He was about to stir us to greater intercession in our land. He was pouring on us a Spirit of Grace and supplication upon us the House of David. Hos 12:10.
The words of Luke 19:41 say that Jesus beheld the city and wept over it. We are to weep over Jerusalem and stand as watchmen on the walls, day and night not being silent until He establishes Jerusalem and makes Her the praise of the earth. Is 62:6, 7? Joel 2 says " 17 Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, LORD".
Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’” We prayed for Israel, for the lost the treasures hidden in darkness for the young people in the land.
The Lord spoke scriptures form the psalms encouraging us to continue praying this year so that we would receive all that He has promised, the joy of seeing the lost come to Christ, young and old. Ps 30:5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. Ps 126 4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev. 5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. 6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. We prayed in to all these scriptures and were blessed richly when we drew close to the Lord in worship.
Feb 11th This phrase seemed to permeate the atmosphere during this meeting:- "Release the Fullness of Your promise". As we prayed we called things into being into the fullness.
2 Peter 1: 3-11 talks about 'participating in the Divine nature by heeding the very great and precious promises He has given to us. Then we add to these character, which stops us being unproductive in our faith. If we don't forget that we have been cleansed of our past sins, and do the things in this passage we are promised that we will never fall and we will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
When we prayed for all different things we prayed for the fullness of His promise to be revealed. We sang 'Release the Fullness of Your Spirit, Shekinah Glory Come'. His presence came and the Lord released faith in His promises.
The whole evening we asked for the Lord to 'Pass through the Gates'. Is 62:10. Psalm 24. Is 45: 1-5
We stand on the gateway to Loughor where the Lord once visited mightily. We were asking and ushering in His presence. John 10: 1-10 states
1“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them.
9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
We as gatekeepers in the land (verse 3) can open the gates for the Great shepherd to come to speak His words to the sheep that will hear His voice. Mal 3:1 “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty.
Haggai 2 6 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.
7 I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. 8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty.
9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”
We were consumed by His presence as we prayed and worshipped him. May He continue to come in His manifest abiding presence once more to our land.
Feb 18th A few of our younger army of prayer, worship warriors turned up tonight. We had a great time of worship followed by praying through the whole of psalm 18 which was laid out around the room. this took up well over an hour and had us focussed on the promises he wants to release in our lives, others lives and the nations of the world. Te presence of god began to increase. we had a couple of testimonies of the way God had intervened in the lives of the people we had prayed for the week before,. Thank You Lord.
The day before I imagined a pool of Bethesda in the Hall as I was driving by it. I felt that we needed to ask the Lord to come for the powerless, the infirm, and the paralytics in our world to visit them and heal them. I was amazed to read the account in John 5.
1 Afterward Jesus returned to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish holy days. 2 Inside the city, near the Sheep Gate, was the pool of Bethesda, with five covered porches. 3 Crowds of sick people—blind, lame, or paralyzed—lay on the porches. 4 for an angel of the Lord came from time to time and stirred up the water. And the first person to step in after the water was stirred was healed of whatever disease he had. 5 One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, “Would you like to get well?”
7 “I can’t, sir,” the sick man said, “for I have no one to put me into the pool when the water bubbles up. Someone else always gets there ahead of me.”
8 Jesus told him, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!”
9 Instantly, the man was healed! He rolled up his sleeping mat and began walking! But this miracle happened on the Sabbath.
This pool was by the sheep gate. we as watchmen can ask the Lord to come and speak, meet and heal his people around the Temple porches. What an honour he has given us. what a calling!
We formed a circle around the pool and asked the Lord to come. Some of us were profoundly touched and moved to tears. Some felt joy, some felt peace. We felt that Jesus was walking around washing our feet, preparing us for service like Jesus did with Peter. Unless you allow me to wash your feet then you will not be fit to do what I have called you to. One of us saw a fountain being released. We worshipped with various songs 'Here is Love vast as the Ocean' and 'Open the floodgates of heaven'. We went half an hour over time and it was hard to finish.
Yes the Lord says as we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.
Feb25th This week we prayed through psalm 144. The Lord had impressed on us the story of the friends who took the paralytic to Jesus feet, lowering him down through the temple roof. Jesus said it was because of their faith this man was healed and forgiven. The Lord was encouraging us to persist in bringing the people before him in prayer without ceasing. Because of our persistence in prayer and faith He would heal and forgive those we brought before him. We prayed for many people we knew in this condition.
Pisgah House of prayer reports Dec 2010 to Dec 2011
December 2010 -- We held the opening evening of prayer, praise and worship on Sat Dec 18th to lay the foundation of the House of Prayer at Pisgah. The snow conditions were extremely difficult but we had 12 people turn up that night, Hallelujah! The Lord's presence was awesome. He has promised us from Haggai 2:18, 19
"From this day on, (from Dec 18th 2010):-
Give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid', Give careful thought; Is there any seed left in the barn? Until now the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. From this day on I will bless you!"
January 2011 - We had a wonderful night on Saturday the 7th where the house was filled with praying and worshipping people from all over Wales. Significant words were given from Isaiah 56:1-2, 6-8 and Matt 21 about 'My House will be a House of Prayer'. This scripture in Matt 21:12-17 mentions the children in the temple and also that the blind and the lame were brought and healed in the temple.
This was so apt as Pisgah was built as a schoolhouse for the children of Loughor and surrounding areas.
Many people were there and we blew the shoffar declaring a Holy fast and consecrating the a Holy assembly in Joel 2 where God's people weep in between the temple porch and the altar crying 'spare your people'. This refers to Israel and the Body of Christ locally.
Each week in January many gathered and there was a real sense that God would bring healing in the temple like at Solomon's colonnade and when the cripple was lowered through the roof of the Temple.
As we worshipped we sensed the anointing of the Holy Spirit and prayer began to flow form that. Zech 12:10 - I will pour out a Spirit of grace and supplication upon the House of David.
Acts 3 featured at the Temple gate called 'Beautiful'. This demonstration of the power of God healing the blind beggar led the rest of the people to repentance - a certain requirement for praying in a great awakening and revival. During this month it was clear that we must pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the restoration of Israel as a clear mandate for the House of Prayer. Isaiah 62. The local 'Prayer for Israel group met in Pisgah at the start of the year because their usual venue at Moriah was not available that evening.
February 2011 -
During February it became clear that as a Prayer House we were to pray for a great youth awakening and revival in the church especially among young people. It was the young people in Evan Robert's day that carried the great singing revival of 1904. If the prayer well dug in 1904 was to be reopened than praying as they did then would be a must.
Around the first two meetings in February the Lord spoke and demonstrated some amazing things to us
On February 5th the Lord gave me a vision in the meeting. It was of a foggy, still morning at Pisgah Chapel followed by the sunrise, the dew was sparkling on the grass. Later in the prayer time the Lord reminded me of Psalm 110: vs 1-3.
"1 The Lord says to my Lord 'Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet'".
2 The Lord will extend your mighty sceptre from Zion, you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle, arrayed in Holy Majesty from the womb of the dawn you will receive the dew of your youth (Your youth like the dew).
The next Saturday morning (12th) was foggy and the dew was thick outside Pisgah chapel and as the sun came up millions of pure glistening droplets of dew were seen all over the grass around the chapel.
That evening young people came and a 'Spirit of grace and supplication fell upon the House of David' Zech 12: 10 and we wept and prayed for a great youth awakening and that an army of revived Christian Youth would arise to do battle in the land once more. God is faithful!! THE POWER OF GOD WAS SO INTENSE WE DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!
We were encouraged by this visitation of the Lord to press on. Heb 12:1-6
March 5th A team from Nations including Suk Kwan came and worshipped in Pisgah. We had a mighty time of prayer and worship. We prayed for Libya.
March 12th and 19th Many battles during prayer times. Testimonies were given that one lady said she hadn't felt the power of God like this for 10 years.
March 26th 2 kings 4 This picture of the widow and the oil reminded us of sowing everything to the anointing of God for the benefit of everyone in the land. As we pray from the deposit of prayer in this place this water will be released for the good of all in the land. many come to drink only to become thirsty again and what the deposit drank wasn’t used for others so they perish quickly. The widow gave all and as a result all her needs were satisfied.
April 2nd This meeting we prayed for the children, the land the poor and needy.
Isaiah 41:17, 18 17 “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.
April 9th We felt very heavy when we gathered but by persistent worship and prayer the atmosphere changed and freedom came with the presence of God. We were reminded of 2 great scriptures as we prayed: -
2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
Jeremiah 29: 10 This is what the LORD says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfil my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity.
April 16th and 23rd During worship we felt we heard Ez 43: 1-5 1 Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, 2 and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.
Rev 19 6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. 7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”
Rev 19 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
We prayed that the Lord one ageing would fill His people, His temple and the land with glory.
April 30th Many gathered and we prayed for the usual areas of prayer. The presence of God came in power.
7th May We prayed corporately for the voice of the Lord to go out in to the land. 'Just one touch from the King changes everything'. Oh land Oh land Oh land hear the word of the Lord. Job 37: 1 “At this my heart pounds and leaps from its place. 2 Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth. 3 He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. 4 After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back. 5 God’s voice thunders in marvellous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.
Psalm 29: 1 Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendour of his[a] holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.
5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
11 The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
14th May Tonight was a continuation of the day’s revival trip of going to tabernacle in Newquay, Blaenannerch and now in Pisgah. We continued to cry out for a life giving river to flow through the land once more.
21st May Ian turned up and played his base guitar. His fingers had healed incredibly quickly. They shouldn't have been ok for another month. this was only 2 weeks after he had surgery to correct severed nerves and tendons. The word from Acts 4 was given out and Rob’s hands were prayed for. his eyes were also healed without even praying for them, see testimony page.
Acts 4 27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
28th May We had our first meeting in the new church hall since the outer wall at Pisgah had become unsafe the previous Sunday. We would not be able to use Pisgah again until the owners had decided to repair it. We prayed and re-iterated our promises like in Joshua 14, Isaiah 58 12 and Isaiah 49: 8, 9. The anointing was powerful as we continued to worship and pray.
Sat 4th, 11th, 18th. Rob testified to the healing of his hand and his unexpected healing of his eye see testimony Tab. We had received a prophetic word saying that we were to build a prayer house that would have its roots in the Welsh revival. Janie shared that she remembered a recurring dream of a great revival wave from the railings near Pisgah sweeping over her before she got to her car. These weeks were filled with worship and prayer constantly tapping and digging the well of prayer and worship.
Jun 25th Had a word from an old friend. He said 'what you are doing with this chapel will affect the globe'. Tonight we had a strong anointing. It seems as though we have picked up the ancient anointing of prayer from Pisgah. Many come to a well for a drink but God is asking us to use the deposit inherited to pour out water to give a drink to all those in the land. We felt the Lord was re-assuring us that He is in control from Is 49
8 This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land
and to reassign its desolate inheritances,
9 to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’ “They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill.
10 They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them.
He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.
14 But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
17 Your children hasten back, and those who laid you waste depart from you.
18 Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come to you. As surely as I live,” declares the LORD, “you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a bride.
Saturday 2nd We re-iterated the promises of God. We asked him to restore Pisgah chapel and more importantly to restore the spiritual well which was opened over a century ago.
Joshua 1:3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.
Isaiah 22:22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.
21 “Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.
22 Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: If you remove wickedness far from your tent
24 and assign your nuggets to the dust, your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines,
25 then the Almighty will be your gold, the choicest silver for you.
26 Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God.
27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfil your vows.
28 What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways.
29 When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’ then he will save the downcast.
30 He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”
July 9th We prayed from Acts 4 for God to stretch forth His hand again.
30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
We were to pray, then there would be a shaking, then the Holy Spirit would fill us resulting in speaking the word of God boldly.
July 16th Good time of worship and prayer and well attended meeting.
July 23rd About this time the prophetic word was being put together about the fire of God coming down to cleanse and change us. See Prophetic word Tabs 2011. There was an awesome sense of the Authority of God in the meeting.
July 30th Tonight was a very Cross of Christ centred meeting. All pride is levelled at the cross.
Luke 18: 49, 50
49 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed!
We must identify with the sufferings of Christ, being baptised into His death, suffering for the gospel, being living sacrifices in Him so that we can burn on the altar with His love and passion being purified in His radiance. Isaiah 6, Malachi 3. 1 Corinthians 1:18 onwards.
Sat 20th and 27th We felt the Lord was drawing us to pray for more purity. Psalm 24 and Isaiah 30:19-22 and Mal 3:1-5 were the main passages we felt led to. The Lord was promising heavy Glory if we are willing to open our gates and doors to let the King of Glory pass through and purify us internally.
Sat 13th We prayed through the confirmed vision about the fire coming to the body of Christ. This word can be found on the Prophetic words 2011 tab.
Sat 6th Tonight we focussed our power on shouting grace to every problem into which we pray. Zech 4
6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O Great Mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone
with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
8 Also the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. 10 For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven will be glad when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel—these are the eyes of the LORD which range to and fro throughout the earth.”
One of our regulars was healed of a voice condition after 2 years, praise God. We prayed for Israel most of the night on the 17th being reminded of Deuteronomy 8 entering the promised land from Pisgah. We were centred on Ps 23 in most prayer meetings no matter what was happening to us during the week. The Lord kept encouraging us as we sang and prayed.
In psalm 37 we see 6 times it mentions that with the right attitude and the Lord's blessing we will inherit the land. This psalm promises so much more and encourages us to keep pressing on to the promised land of milk and honey.
On Saturday 15th me and Simon had arranged to meet in the morning at 7:00 am to pray and praise the Lord. We had not met for a few months in the morning. We arrived at the Festival Fields Llanelli where Celebration for the Nations was held in 2007. Many nations came to 'Sing to the Wells' in Wales for 8 days so that God would open them up once again and flood the land with revival. Hundreds of young Koreans came and shifted the spiritual atmosphere during this week and they have been coming back every summer year since then.
This Saturday morning was still and dark once again and as the sun began to rise it was yellow in colour. The light shone across the field and millions of golden dew droplets were seen across the fields. The Lord reminded us of Psalm 110:1-3 of a great army of youth arising in him. See the prophetic words page on the tab above for more on this. What an encouragement again. We prayed for this awakening to come to pass.
Saturday the 8th we were reminded of the word that the Lord was coming to begin to judge the house of God, first so that we would walk the land in power and authority in the fullness of Christ, clean and spotless before Him. See the second prophetic word for more on this on the prophetic words tab above. A steady group attended each week of 17-25 people.
During the four Saturdays in November we were blessed with some young people form the surrounding area and a local church. They enjoyed praying and worshipping and we heard that a youth event had been scheduled in the area with the band Superhero and rap bands and speakers. They were visiting various schools and inviting young people to come. We prayed into this.
Eight youngsters were saved and we heard that locally many young people had been saved in the Gorseinon and Loughor areas during the year which was such an encouragement and an outworking of the prayers and the words given to us in March. Psalm 110: 1-3.
"1 The Lord says to my Lord 'Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet'".
2 The Lord will extend your mighty sceptre from Zion, you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle, arrayed in Holy Majesty from the womb of the dawn you will receive the dew of your youth (Your youth like the dew).
Dawn and Michelle joined the worship singing in the band. Michelle we prayed out to pastures new in December.
Many times the Lord kept reminding us of Joel chapter 2. God is coming in judgement. The Lord says to his people 'Sound the alarm, declare a Holy fast, rend your heart not your garments, weep in between the altar and the temple porch crying 'Spare your people', 'don’t let them become an object of scorn in the Nations'.
The Lord hears their prayers and relents and begins to bless the praying remnant. This ultimately ends up with the Lord saying
'And afterwards, I will pour out My Spirit on all Flesh. Your sons and daughters will prophesy
Your old men will dream dreams and young men will see visions
Even on My servants, both men and women I will pour out My Spirit in those days'
The Lord kept reminding us to pray the promises of God and believe wholeheartedly like Caleb, not allowing our hearts to sink with a bad report so that we would posses that entire God has planned for us.
Vision of God's hand
On the 13th November I saw a vision of the Lords hand gripping us. I felt that the Lord was saying that as Kings and Priests in His Kingdom we were His possession now and that we were safe in His hand and that He would move us to follow His plans and purposes without having to fear missing any of them. He would pray and reach out through us. Proverbs 21:1 says 'The King's heart is in the hand of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases.'
Isaiah 45 1-5 was given out with the thought 'If King Cyrus had such a powerful anointing form the Lord to do all those things in these 5 verses and God said He would honour him even though the king did not acknowledge God,' HOW MUCH MORE WILL HE ACCOMPLISH THE THINGS IN THESE VERSES THROUGH US, WHEN WE ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND WHEN OUR HEARTS ARE IN HIS HAND! (Prov 21:1) (Rom 5: 9-11).
We are just approaching our FIRST ANNIVERSARY on the 17th Dec 2011
Last year 12 of us braved the sub zero Welsh snowfields to pray at Pisgah. Since then 52 weeks later we have been on an exciting journey. Sadly the building became unsafe to use in May due to the severe frosts, ice and snow last winter which caused damage to the outer wall and we had to move the meetings to a different location. During the year God has given us a foundational blueprint for the prayer house. We have found that we are praying into 5 distinct areas at the moment:-
1) Praying for a great youth awakening including children locally and nationally
2) Praying for revival in the Body of Christ locally, nationally and internationally, that we would become more intimate with God and that the anointing in the Body would increase.
3) Praying for the Nation of Israel.
4) Praying for the area of addiction locally and the families affected by addiction
5) Praying for various crises as they occur as the Holy Spirit leads us.
This blueprint has aligned us with Prayer storm, Jim Goll's global prayer vision to which we are subscribed to pray for at least one hour each week on Saturday nights.
On the 17th of December we reminded ourselves of the vision given to us in Haggai 1, 2 and Zechariah 4.
We prayed out Michelle who was off to pastures new to begin full time training and then to travel on the Christian youth scene. She has an awesome gift of seeing in the Spirit and a great heart for revival among the youth of for Israel too. Please continue to pray for her.
A few months ago we prayed out Mikaela who is now studying at home in Finland. She was born in Israel and has a great heart for God's purposes and plans for the nation of Israel and wherever she feels led by the Spirit. Please continue to pray for her.
More recently we prayed for Mark Trubrey who has gone to Elim Bible College. He has an awesome gift in prophetic evangelism, preaching and encouraging. Pleas pray to keep the fires brining in his life so that he fulfils his destiny.
On Saturday the 10th of December we were led to pray in worship and intercession for the light of the Lord to shine and move mountains of darkness. Testimonies that the Lord did just that were heard at the end of the meeting. His word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path Psalm 119.
We broke into 4 groups for prayer and intercession each one praying in their own preferred style.
Various prophetic words of encouragement were given in one of the groups as we sought to encourage one another in the Lord.
On Saturday the 3rd December, we prayed a lot into the area of addiction as a new dry house in the area had been opened and a new support group was being birthed on the Monday. People of all ages came to pray. Isaiah 45 1-5 was given out with the thought 'If King Cyrus had such a powerful anointing form the Lord to do all those things in these verses and God said He would honour him even though he did not acknowledge God,' HOW MUCH MORE WILL HE DO THESE THINGS THROUGH US, WHEN OUR HEARTS ARE IN HIS HAND! (Prov 21:1) (Rom 5: 9-11).
Visions being fulfilled This night, Dec 3rd was a sign of God fulfilling prophetic vision given years previously. In Nov 2008, I attended a conference at Revival Fires Dudley. Bill Johnson was speaking and during the afternoon session the Spirit of Grace and supplication came upon me Zech 12:10 and I wept as I heard the Lord ask "Will you stand in the gap for the addicts and bound up people in Llanelli and surrounding areas?" I was overwhelmed as I felt God's heart for the broken.
Almost 8-10 years ago I was in another conference about ‘Listening to God', and Brad Jerdsak asked us to wait upon the Lord and to stay quiet individually and to ask the Lord where we were in our journey with Him. Straight away God showed me that I was in the Cave of Adullam along with the depressed, the people in debt , those in need etc 1 Samuel 23:1and 2 ' David left Gath and went to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father's household heard about it, they went down to him there. 2 All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered round him, and he became their leader. About 400 men were with him.
The true leadership, kingly anointing of the Lord was upon King David in this cave. The men that gathered there later became the mighty men of David transformed by his leadership and the anointing of God upon him to do mighty exploits in the Lord's name. See 2 Samuel 23:8-39. Verses 13 and 14 of 2 Samuel 23 say this 'During harvest time, three of the thirty men came down to David at the Cave of Adullam while a band of Philistines was encamped in the valley of Rephaim. 14 At the time David was in the stronghold.....etc.
Some of the workers, volunteers and attendees of Choose Life, a local Christian organisation (Llanelli) which seeks to minister into the issues of people caught in various addictions and their families, are a regular part of Pisgah prayer meetings.
This month, Monday night meetings have begun in the Choose Life facility for the purpose of worship, praise, testimony and sharing the love of Christ with one another.
This evening has been named THE CAVE (Adullam's cave) and is taking place in the same building that the vision of adullam's cave was received in that conference all those years ago. Yes God speaks and brings to pass that which he announces beforehand, Isaiah 42: 9. We have already seen people's lives touched and the love of Christ is tangible. Phil 3: 12-14
Be encouraged and keep pressing on in prayer, the Lord is faithful.
